How to water the Planter:
Place the ocean rock (without base) in a tub of water and fill to just below the top edge of the planter/dirt. Allow to soak for 15 minutes as water permeates the porous walls of the organic material. Remove, allowing to dry on a water-resistant surface, and then return it to a sunny spot.
